Two years ago a non-English speaking Korean neighbor gave me some seeds of what I felt sure was Plantago major. I grew some last year in a container garden....growth was so-so. SOMEHOW seeds from there got into a much damper Water Wise Container Garden about 15 feet away and THIS winter growth was lush. I have a very bitter palate yet am challenged by its bitter taste eaten alone but can enjoy it chopped into a salad or Thai stir fry as it is very medicinal as a tonic plant. Looks like I am in for a big harvest of seeds. In Colorado this is a very common "weed" but I rarely see it except in rural areas east of Tampa. Friends over in St. Pete see it there now and then.
